MacVoices #17157: Road to Macstock – Kirschen Seah on the Ease of Approach to Automator

The Road to Macstock is almost at an end, but not before Kirschen Seah of Free Range Coder tells us how she will be getting us excited about Apple’s Automator in both a main stage presentation, as well as a Deeper Dive session. Kirschen provides some examples of what Automator can do, and why you don’t have to know a single line of code to start automating your own activities.
